AC Milan defender Simon Kjaer admits he's resisted offers from the Premier League.

The Dane has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.

But the 32 year-old told TV3: "I have had my opportunities to go there, but it has never been the right thing for me. I have always liked a good climate and good food. Since I came down here when I was 19, it has always weighed incredibly high for me to be in the south.

"That was also why I went to Turkey and Spain so I could get challenges that lay in it.

"I have always been open to learning something new, but I am also a place where I want to do everything in the whole world to be there as long as possible, where the framework is right for me. So I have absolutely no plans to go to England."
